I am still on Meteor 1.2 and considering an update to 1.3/1.4. What I absolutely love about Meteor is the easy way to share common code across apps. For my set-up, I am using common packages stored in a central folder referenced by PACKAGE_DIRS. This works perfectly, and once I update on of these common packages, all apps refresh themselves, even if they are running at the very same time.
Now I read this section in the Meteor guide:
It does not mention sharing code this way anymore. The only options listed are git submodules (I am using Subversion for versioning), symbolic links (not a good idea since this causes problems when more than one developer is involved), and private npm packages (which cost a monthly fee and also mean that I would have to update my packages in every app).
What happened to my beloved PACKAGE_DIRS option, is this deprecated now?
